Tired. Looking forward to getting back to my regular life.

trail through a forest

I’ve been sick, on and off, for the past couple of weeks, so I haven’t been able to swim.

I’ve also been crazy busy at work, so I haven’t had much time to focus on doing more than reacting to other people’s “stuff”.

I really need to get back in the pool. And get back to my exercising. I’ve had some neck and shoulder problems, so I haven’t been able to work out as much as I’d like. My neck is feeling better – and I booked a chair massage at work for this coming Thursday. I hope that helps.

I’m feeling okay, but I’m pretty beat, right now. I had a full weekend with more activity than usual, and my spouse is sick, so I’m taking care of them. I made some calls to all the possible neuropsychs who had been recommended to me by someone — but I still have some others I need to reach out to.

Turns out, there’s a chance I might not be able to get insurance to cover another assessment. Well, it was a long shot.

If I ever have an extra $2,000-4,000 lying around (ha!), I’ll give the docs a call.

Work has been way too dramatic for my tastes, lately. All sorts of politicking and what-not. That’s tiring, too. Like everybody’s rearranging their deck chairs on the Titanic…

But next week, I’ve resolved to just ignore all that. Let people go on their way, and not give them any thought. I have my own life to live, after all. And they’re not paying me rent to hang out in my head.

Life goes ever onward.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
